The power of God to save us and transform us is the  Gospel (Romans 1:16). The gospel brings is God’s power for salvation and for living a faithful life. There is no other way for us to be saved from the practice or the penalty of sin. There is no other way for us to be transformed into the likeness of Christ, the Son. The next time we face sin or temptation, let us lean not on our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6). Let us, rather, look to God’s word for His message of grace and kindness that will lead us to repentance (Romans 2:4).
